Ion Action Bars  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: Lithium 3.1.2a
by: Maul, Jrosk, SLOKnightfall, Soyier

Introducing Ion - Version 3 "Lithium"

Ion is a macro-based action bar addon. It can stand on its own or supplement any other action bar addon or even the default Blizzard UI.




Modules:
Ion comes with 4 modules that can be used for a full featured action bar experience. These modules are optional, but it is highly recommended that they be used for the best experience.

Features:
  • Ion features an unlimited number of macros. You can create as many bars/buttons as you want/need per character!
  • Are you a keybinder extreme? Use the button storage area for all your macros/keybindings! No buttons on screen needed!
  • Are you a clicker extraordinaire? As many buttons on the screen you want where you want, when you want!
  • Macros the size of Texas! Up to 1024 characters in length!
  • Maul's unique mouse-over key-binding system - where the mouse-over binding system was born!
  • Many other of the favorite desired bar addon features and then some!
  • And, importantly, MASQUE support!


Graphical Editor:
Ion contains a graphical bar editor that allows for a nearly endless customization of bar shape, size, orientation, etc, that has neither limitations on max number of bars nor the number of buttons per bar. Further all of the options found in the graphical bar editor can also be set using the below command structure:


Commands:
Type /ion alone to display a list of available commands, which are:
  • menu: Toggle the main menu
  • storage: Open the button storage area
  • create: Create a blank bar
  • delete: Delete the currently selected bar
  • config: Toggle configuration mode for all bars
  • add: Adds buttons to the currently selected bar (add or add #)
  • remove: Removes buttons from the currently selected bar (remove or remove #)
  • edit: Toggle edit mode for all buttons
  • bind: Toggle binding mode for all buttons
  • scale: Scale a bar to the desired size.
  • snapto: Toggle SnapTo for current bar
  • autohide: Toggle AutoHide for current bar
  • shape: Change current bar's shape
  • name: Change current bar's name
  • strata: Change current bar's frame strata
  • alpha: Change current bar's alpha (transparency)
  • alphaup: Set current bar's conditions to 'alpha up'
  • arcstart: Set current bar's starting arc location (in degrees)
  • arclen: Set current bar's arc length (in degrees)
  • columns: Set the number of columns for the current bar
  • padh: Set current bar's horizontal padding

  • padhv: Adjust both horizontal and vertical padding of the current bar incrementally
  • showgrid: Toggle the current bar's showgrid flag
  • x: Change current bar's horizontal axis position
  • y: Change current bar's vertical axis position
  • state: Toggle states for the current bar (/mac state <state>). Type /mac statelist for vaild states
  • statelist: Print a list of valid states
  • load: Load a profile
  • lock: Lock buttons

Lithium 3.0 - Update to WoW 7.3
-Bug fixes
-FAQ rework
-PlaySound fix


Helium 2.1.1 - Bug fixes

Helium 2.1 - Update to WOW 7.2
- Removed legacy morph spell code
- Removed legacy trap launcher code
- Code clean up
- Reworked Rogues stealth bars to use the stance setting. This should allow them shadow dance to change bars correctly. This change will probably result in lost old style stealth layouts.
- Added a Shadow Dance bar state for Subtlety rogues when using the "Stealth" bar state. This allows for a separate Stealth and Shadow Dance bars to be used. Users can opt to remap the Stealth bar to the Shadow Dance state if they want a single bar state
- Fix for issue where dragging a item to the bar when the editor was open would overwrite the home state macro.
- Fixed issue where macro text would not clear between bar states.
- Fixed some issues with flyouts not generating correctly.
- Added flyout macro generator to the button editor window.

It is a shame the addon is just about usable. It just has some annoying bugs that make it time consuming and tedious to use. Like for Druids it will not detect any forms in a fly-out.

I am running into serious issues with macros that either don't update and stay blank, or show the correct macro but cast the previous macro code, or even macros that won't save. In a macro-based addon, I can't help but find that a bit of a deal-killer over the long-term. Having tooltips that show the wrong spell, in a new expansion with new icons for old spells, new icons for new spells and new classes (so MORE new spells) is also rather a giant pain. I use the GitHub version (debug code removed) so my extra action button is fine.
set your misbehaving bar to dual spec mode. macros that should be the same between specs, you should copy to clipboard, switch specs, and paste back (or copy them all to a notepad, then switch specs and copy back)

Every single addon developer spend their free time and spare energy to develop addons. It takes time and effort to make a good and bug-free addon. Do not take this effort for granted. Rather, appreciate the fact that developers actually bother to share their projects with you, and bother to keep up with feature requests that the author himself might not ever use. Whether or not Maul is working fast or slow is basically none of your business - he has provided you with an awesome addon to use, although not entirely bug free for the time being, so be grateful of that instead of complaining. Actually, it would be even better if you supported him and donated a few instead of complaining about "slow progress" or "dead project" and what not. Give the man some room.

That said; I find Ion to be really useful regardless of the bugs people encounter. With a simple macro attached to a bar of its own I've worked around the issue with the special button, and the rest of the addon works fine without issues for the rest of my needs. As such, I'd like to thank Maul for continuing the effort for this long (all the way from Trinity Buttons to Ion), and I am looking forward to see what might show up on the horizon in the future.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Hi

Look, I can understand the man has a life, but come on. He threw us a bone cause the bridging patch was earlier than he expected, but jeeze. It's almost been two months since the expansion and NOTHING has been updated. Is Maul really going to update this thing? I love his addons, I've bitten my tongue this long, but this has gone too long without at least a "I'm still working on it". It's not going to be too long before we see 5.1 at this rate...

It's not just the macros... it's the additional length of macros. I could use the internal macro system if it weren't for that...

Here's a sample of one of my macros...
Code:
/cast [equipped:Fishing Pole] Fishing
/stopmacro [equipped:Fishing Pole]


/cast [@mouseover,dead,help][dead,help] Resurrection
/cast [@mouseover, help] [help] [@focus,help] Greater Heal;
/cast [@mouseover, help,spec:2] [help,spec:2] [@focus,help,spec:2] Flash Heal 
/stopmacro [@mouseover, help] [help] [@focus,help]

/startattack [spec:2]
/castsequence  [spec:2,noform] reset=1 Shadowform, Rip
/cast [spec:2,nochanneling] Mind Flay; [spec:1] Smite
/cast [pet] Shadowcrawl

#spec2

Maul is still alive btw^^but I guess he's raiding hard, finding little time to develop, as usual, he made this addon for himself and himself only - as long as it does what he needs it to do... you see... that's what matters most :P

But, as with previous iterations on the trinity and macaroon frameworks, he'll be back with fresh code some time soon so don't worry too much. Also, you can fiy the per-character thing by putting multiple addon folders in your */interface/addons/ folder, just activate them from your addon selection screen on a per character basis and voila... you get your character profiles


have fun, cheers

Location state

Is it possible to make a custom bar state for location? Basically what I am after is a custom state for if I am at Yoon's Farm.

Thanks, and as always maul.. you rule.

Do we think this project is still alive? Whilst I hope it is I have to say I have my doubts in the absence of any kind of update, be it download or just a comment on where the project is in tems of what is being worked on and when a new release may be available.

As much as I hate to say this, with the amount of issues there are with this addon at the moment perhaps its time to move on to something else, like Bartender <spit>. As much as I hate that addon at least it is working and does get updated when there are issues.

Can somebody helping test this give a heads up please. Coming here each day looking to see if there is a scrap of information is starting to feel like the MOP dailies.

Oh, and I'll gladly donate several more cases of soda if I get a new and improved version to download.

But, somebody, throw us a bone because abuse to animals is unkind. Danke.
